Kenny head shotKenny is our new “go to guy” for DALLAS!  You will see Kenny on set as well as in our office sometimes.  He is frequently the guy you will check in with on DALLAS and who will help you be in the right place at the right time.  Kenny has worked with Legacy as a background actor and stand in for many years and we are thrilled to have him as part of our team!

Favorite movie:  Singing in the Rain, Blazing Saddles, and Monty Python’s Holy Grail
Favorite tv shows:  Person Of Interest, Walking Dead, and of course Dallas.

Favorite movie quote:  Jim: [consoling Bart] “What did you expect? “Welcome, sonny”? “Make yourself at home”? “Marry my daughter”? You’ve got to remember that these are just simple farmers. These are people of the land. The common clay of the new West. You know… morons.”  (From Blazing Saddles)

Most memorable on set moment:  Kenny finds it hard to choose just one since he has had so many great moments.  From working closely on set with George Strait and Isabelle Glasser for Pure Country to working with the legends on the set of Dallas and several moments in between.  There were times on the set of Good Guys that he laughed so hard he would have tears in his eyes from the off camera antics of Bradley Whitford and Collin Hanks.  Each moment in this industry is a treasure all its own.

Can’t live without:  Coffee, and not just in the morning!  Kenny drinks it all day long!

Little known fact:  Kenny started in the industry as a choreographer and instructor for country music in ’89 and a few years later was nominated for a CMA award for Instructor of the Year.

Rachel Constantinescu

Favorite movie The King’s Speech  . . . don’t even get her started on how brilliant this movie is!

Favorite movie quote:  “Ella, is that why you agreed to meet me here?”  (Andrei Constantinescu’s first line as Bruce Stern in “Beyond a Reasonable Doubt”)

Most memorable on set moment Andrei tries not to let Rachel go on set because he is afraid she will do something really embarrassing such as go in the actors’ trailers or give the director some suggestions BUT she loved watching Kristen Chenoweth in action on GCB.  Kristen proves that great things come in tiny packages!

Can’t live without:  Andrei, iphone, her Sonicare toothbrush, TJ Maxx and the DVR.

Robin Devoe

Robin is our DALLAS set PA!  You can always recognize her on set by her TCU ballcap, (she is never without it) and her iphone.  (It’s a tool, not a toy people!)  Anyone who has seen Robin on set knows that she is THE BEST!!!

Favorite movie:  Silence of the Lambs (Clarice Starling is Robin’s favorite movie heroine.)
Favorite movie quotes: Andy Dufresne in “Shawshank Redemption” . . . “Get busy living, or get busy dying.” and later in the movie . . . [In letter to Red] “Remember Red, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.”
Most memorable on set moment: Getting to shake hands with Bradley Whitford was pretty earth shattering, especially since I’m such a big West Wing fan. But some of my most memorable moments have been simple ones, like packing up after our first time at Southfork, and feeling like I was the luckiest girl in the world, to get to “run away with the circus”…getting to do something I love this much everyday.
Can’t live without:  Our Lord Jesus, her family and friends (including her two kitties), and her Mad Men and Fringe DVD’s.
Little known fact:  Robin is a great baker.  She loves cookies, cupcakes, cakes, or pies.  In her words, “I don’t do protein.  I do sugar highs.”
